Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)
This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 87.1/100, a mean average of 85.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

Not a Dylan fan, but it's ok.
This feels like a more personal album from Bob Dylan and in my opinion this works wonderfully making it possibly his greatest ever release. Musically, it is catchy and infectious with Dylan's classic folk style dominating the majority of the songs. His guitar and harmonica playing always seemed so personal and relatable but on here it elevates this to new levels. When you pair this with his fantastic vocal display you get a performance that at times feels like Dylan is performing solely to you. I always get that feeling for pretty much the entire run time of the release making it so easy to connect to him on here. His lyrics are brimming with ideas and they are a lot more relatable with him discussing personal issues that we can empathise with and learn from his experience. His lyrics are worth looking into as they truly are poetry and they will seriously impress you with how intelligent he is with his wordplay. I also don't think there is a bad, or even an average, song on this release with every track feeling significant making this one of the most consistent albums ever released. It also just feels so warm and comfortable to listen to and on this album Dylan has this unique ability of making me think everything will be okay for the 52 minutes this album plays as I just get completely lost in the music. Overall, this record is full of personality, character and quality with it showcasing everything that is so amazing about Bob Dylan and it truly is one of his masterpieces.
I don’t feel like typing too much so I’ll just make it short and sweet. This is without a doubt my favorite Dylan album and I think it’s his best. It is without a doubt his most focused album. I think he was trying to prove something considering this came out during a crucial time in his career
I have been enraptured by this album from the day it was released in early 1975. It is my go to album, even now (nearly 50 years later). I have it at #2 on my all greatest albums. Timing is everything - I was 18, had moved out of home, was making my own mark in the world, my girlfriend had moved 500kms away to begin her tertiary studies & we drifted apart - so the mood & lyrics fitted me like a glove and defines forever that key moment in my life. It's also the songs on this album (Tangled Up In Blue/Shelter From The Storm) that I love to perform in public.
Aching, lonely songs that form perhaps Dylan's most personal body of work.
This is where Dylan came back in his solo career. Although not as good as BOB or H61, it's still great. Tangled up in Blue is my fav
To come back in this way truly shows Dylan to be the musical cat with nine lives. This is my personal favourite in a glittering career. The emotion shown here is so honest, so believable and passionately raw. Going back to making acoustic guitar based stories brings back memories of his humble beginnings and in many ways by being that bit older and wiser he creates the best version of this type of Dylan record.
Sad and beautiful Bob Dylan's album, I kinda prefer his earlier work like Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde, but this is one is different and shows Bob's diversity. Highlights for me are Tangled Up In Blue, Idiot Wind and Shelter From The Storm, but there are no bad tracks on here.
El propio Dylan dijo en una ocasión que no sabía cómo alguien podía disfrutar escuchando un disco lleno de dolor como este. Pues lo siento, a mí me parece maravilloso.
